I remember back before I became a mom being able to fall asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow.  I could stay asleep all night and woke up refreshed and ready for the day.  Now that I’m in my thirties, a mom of 3, and what feels like the weight of the world on my shoulders, I long for those fully restful nights.
Now a days, I crash into bed after getting my little ones their fifth cup of water, trying to clean up for the morning, and making sure all the doors are locked and the dogs set for the night.  As my head hits the pillow I think about how exhausted I am and assume that surely I will be snoring in minutes.  However without fail, I start thinking of the next days errands, what I didn’t get done on todays to-do list, and every remotely possible thing I should be worried about concerning my kids.
Then once I fall asleep, I toss and turn, or am woken up by tiny bladders that need to pee or little belly aches.  This is the life of a mommy I guess, because I see all my fellow dark under eye circled mommy friends yawning at the playground. 
However there are a few things us mom’s can do to help us get a more restful nights sleep.
1.  Try to stick to a scheduled bedtime.  Bedtimes are not just for the kids, maintaining a routine with the same sleep and wake times will help train your body to fall asleep and stay asleep.  I began setting an alarm on my phone an hour before I need to go to sleep to help remind me that its time to wind down.  Otherwise I could easily get sucked into Pinterest world or a project and suddenly realize I wanted to be asleep hours ago.

2.  Watch what you eat and drink at night.  Stay away from caffeine and large meals that will increase your energy level and cause havoc on your sleep schedule.
3.  Get some exercise and fresh air during the day.  I’ve started walking outside for about an hour a day.  It was a war in my mind for weeks because I felt I should be doing so many other things besides walking around the neighborhood.  However now that I’ve been doing it for a few weeks, I can see how much it has not only decreased my stress, and helped the number on the scale slowly creep down, but also my sleep has greatly improved.
4.  Turn off your electronics and dim the lights an hour before bed.  This was the hardest routine change for me.  I’m used to laying in bed with the TV on and phone in hand.  However I have changed my routine, now when my alarm goes off for bedtime, I set my notifications on silent and turn the TV off.  Then I take a shower, get into comfy jammies, read or write, and try to veg out electronic free for a little while.  It really does help slow me down.
5.  Make your bedroom a sanctuary with a comfortable mattress.  Make sure your decorations and bedding are calming to you, and your bedroom is a place you want to be.  Try not to work where you sleep, make your bedroom a place of relaxation.
Most importantly make sure you have a mattress that you love!  You can follow every sleep rule there is, but if your mattress isn’t comfortable, you’ll never get a great night sleep.

Nordical’s Technical Details:
Nodical mattresses are designed with next generation Memory Foam – EnergexTM — a high performance, durable and breathable hybrid foam made of plant-based oils and without latex. Energex Memory Foam is infused with an assortment of minerals and materials, which when blended together help to naturally pull heat away from the body. Energex supports deeper, uninterrupted sleep because it allows you to turn and move more freely, provides relief from pressure points, and absorbs the “bounce” caused by movement. This quick recovery and resiliency works to eliminate that “stuck in the bed” feeling common with other memory foam beds. Nodical’s creamier foam features a much smaller cell structure providing quicker recovery times, better airflow between the cells and reduced heat retention – all of which adds up to a more restful night’s sleep. For added temperature control, they incorporate ThermaGelTM beads which are body-heat activated to support rapid cooling and to maintain an ideal cool bedding temperature, especially helpful for those who experience heat spikes throughout the night. Nodical mattresses naturally breathe and pull excessive heat away to create a cooler, calming environment so you fall asleep faster, and stay asleep longer.
